Kanile'a is a local ukulele company from here on our island of Oahu. Kanile'a is an amazing value because the quality and sound are excellent.This is a new model that has upgraded ebony for the bridge and fingerboard as well as Kailua beach sand for the inlayed logo and position dots.

In a few years time Kanile'a has refined their process again and again, continuing to grow more full in tone and consistently amazing to look at.  They are using the finest koa for even basic models like this. Their UV gloss finish is the most glassy perfect and smooth you will find. The voicing is very present even in this small soprano as well as this soprano neck being comfortable to those that often play concert and tenor. 14 frets to body and geared tuners make this a great crossover to soprano.

Soprano is the cutest, most portable uke size. It is also the original size so it has the classic tone. Many modern players tend to buy tenors because Asia makes a better $100 tenor than a $100 soprano (mostly). However, that is not the case with this level of soprano. The feel, sound and look coming from Kanile'a has never been better and with the rising cost of koa and life in Hawaii these definitely won't get better in price. Grab this beauty today!

If you are looking for a soprano ukulele you will really love to play, this Kanile'a is a treat (and a great deal!!).
